U.S. Representative D-Hawaii

Gabbard: Countless men and women from my state of Hawaii and all across the country have worn the uniform and put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and our liberties. I cannot in good conscience vote to take a single dollar from the pockets of hard-working taxpayers from across the country to pay for programs which infringe on the very liberties and freedoms our troops have fought and died for. Ben Franklin said they who gave up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Gabbard: It's so important for us as we look at this threat to make sure that we focus our resources on those who are posing a threat to the American people. We’ve been hearing from some folks recently and I think we may hear a lot more from people who will advocate for greater surveillance greater NSA programs than we have seen already expanding those, which is not the right move a, because they haven't been proven to be effective, that spying on and collecting phone call information on every single American is effective in capturing terrorists but it also weakens our ability to focus our resources on those who pose a direct threat think this has been a problem that we have seen in the Boston bomber attack for example, that we have seen in Paris, where people fall through the cracks because our resources are not focused on those who are planning these attacks and who do pose that direct threat.
